He was probing and tapping every step of the way to arrive at the proper generalisation, and tried scheme after scheme.

Lanczos worked as an assistant to Einstein who had relatively few assistants and co-authors, preferring to work alone in Berlin during the academic year.

The second tape 45 minutes is autobiographical, and the third tape 54 minutes contains a discussion about the life and work of Albert Einstein. The proper meaning of ‘classical’ is something first class, something hors concours, something of timeless quality, something that should be emulated.

This was obtained by incredibly subtle and bold imagination which combined the most advanced ideas of physics, mathematics and geometry, on the slender empirical basis of the double role of every mass as the source of gravitation and inertia.

He discovered the diagonalizable matrix. The mischief thus created is tremendous. Whether it lanczso the increasing impact of atomism, or the radioactive phenomena, or Planck’s radiation law, or the entrance of the quanta — in all these realms of physical theory Einstein’s fundamental investigations opened new and exciting vistas.

When Elmar looked at his own firstborn son, he said: The term ‘classical physics’ misuses the word ‘classical’ by creating an entirely false association.

Lanczos summary

Books such as The Variational Principles of Mechanics [8] show corndlius explanatory ability and enthusiasm as a physics teacher. Einstein became the lone wolf who continued undismayed in his speculations, in which the majority of physicists lost all interest. Between andEinstein was the undisputed leader of all physics.
